Cisplatin is a cancer medication that interferes with the growth of cancer cells and slows their growth and spread in the body.

Cisplatin is used together with other medications to treat bladder cancer, testicular cancer, or ovarian cancer.

Recommendation:.

The recommended dose of 20 mg/m2 intravenously once a day for 5 days per cycle (in combination with other antineoplastic drugs)

Treating cancer of the testes ovaries or bladder. Cisplatin may be used alone or in combination with other medications. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Cisplatin is an antineoplastic agent. It works by stopping cancer cells from growing and reproducing.

Precautions:

Body fluids should not be handled by a woman who is pregnant or who may become pregnant. Use condoms during sexual activity to avoid exposure to body fluids.

Avoid being near people who are sick or have infections. Tell your doctor at once if you develop signs of infection.

Cisplatin can cause side effects that may impair your vision. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be able to see clearly.

Breastfeeding:

One case report found milk platinum levels to be one-tenth plasma levels. Another case report found milk platinum levels to be essentially the same as maternal plasma levels. The majority of platinum found in the milk is probably bound to protein and is therefore essentially inactive. Based on the confirmed presence of platinum in breastmilk, however, fetal harm is possible and breast-feeding should be discontinued during cisplatin therapy.

Cisplatin is excreted into human milk. Breast-feeding is considered to be contraindicated by the manufacturer.
